Cozy goodness!   


Recipes From Zoe Donovan And Friends
by Kathi Daley

Christmas in Ashton Falls is a special time of year. Snow is falling, trees are trimmed, and holiday shoppers migrate to Main Street to view the holiday windows and buy those last minute gifts. Join Zoe Donovan as she spends Christmas Eve reminiscing about special holiday memories.

The cookbook includes more than 50 recipes as well as full color holiday graphics and anecdotes from Zoe on Christmas Eve.



As a cozy mystery reader, and cookbook collector, nothing makes me happier than to find a recipe book based on a cozy series. Kathi Daley is the amazing author of multiple cozy mystery series, and her most popular has got to be the Zoe Donovan Cozy Mysteries. So, the ASHTON FALLS COZY COOKBOOK was a must have for me!

The ASHTON FALLS COOKBOOK opens with series protagonist, Zoe, talking about her Christmas tradition. Through the course of the book, Zoe’s story continues, interspersed among recipes from Zoe and her friends. I loved the personal touch of Zoe sharing her story with us.

 There are no photos of the finished recipes. However, there are adorable Christmas illustrations that endeared me to the book. The adorable graphics, along with the easy to follow directions, will not only make using this cookbook fun for you, but special to share with the children in your life.

Appetizers, Muffins and Sweet Breads, Soups, Stews, Chili and Chowder, Main Dishes, Desserts and Other Sweets are all represented with simple, tasty recipes like . . . Pizzs Rolls, Chipped Beef Dip, Crab and Artichoke Dip, Apple Pie Biscuits, Amaretto Pumpkin Bread, Timberland Shrimp Chowder, Cheesy Ham and Potato Soup, Zoe’s Chicken Tortilla Casserole, Italian Beef Sandwiches, Pulled Pork Verde, Mini Cherry Cheesecake, Boysenberry Bars, and so many more!

Even though it’s less than one hundred pages, the ASHTON FALLS COOKBOOK packs a culinary punch with it’s delicious, simple content. You’ll want to add this one to your collection today!
